VERSE:
[E]We were just a plain ol' hillbilly band with a plain ol' country style

[B7]Played a [E]railroad song with a stompin' beat
[E]We played a [A]blues song kinda slow and sweet
[A]But the [F#]thing that knocked 'em off of there feet was ooo-[B7]wee
CHORUS:
[B7]When [E]Luther played the boogie woogie
[E]Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie
[E]Luther played the boogie woogie, [A]Luther played the boogie woogie

[E]Luther played the boogie in the [B7]strangest kind of [E]way (play it strange)

VERSE:
Well we did our best to entertain everywhere we'd go
We'd nearly wear our fingers off to give the folks a show
We played a jumpin' jive to make 'em get in the grove
We played a sad song kinda slow and smooth
But the only thing that'd make 'em move was ooo-wee
CHORUS:
When Luther played the boogie woogie
Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie
Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie
Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie
Luther played the boogie in the strangest kind of way
